*Swim Team only members are considered members of the Dolphin Swim Team with restrictions on use of the pool and grounds during swim team events and hours and do not have voting rights.

New families interested in membership are encouraged to join our waitlist.  There is a nonrefundable $10 processing fee.  As memberships become available we are offering them to families on the waitlist in the order they joined.  If you fail to renew your membership by paying your dues on time, fail to respond to your membership invite, or decline you must (re)join the waitlist to become a member. 

Membership Disclaimer:

The Meadows Swim Club does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, sex, age, sexual preference or disability in membership, club sponsored activities or guests of members. 

VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENTS


The club’s preference is that everyone be active in helping maintain the club physically and socially through required volunteer hours.  Each membership must complete one of the following:

-Serve 5 hours throughout the season.* 

OR

-Pay a volunteer waiver fee of $125 with their dues signifying that they will not be volunteering. 

*If the fee is not paid with dues it is our understanding that you will be serving your hours.  Failure to do so increases the upkeep costs and work load for everyone else. If you decide to pay the volunteer fee later in the season the fee will be increased to $150.   All volunteer fees must be paid by 10/01/24.  If you are not up to date with your volunteer requirement by this date you will not be eligible for membership the following year.  

If you have a single or couple membership, and all patrons on your membership are 70 years old, or older, you may email the club to apply for a volunteer requirement waiver. 

 

GUEST POLICIES & FEES


Members are allowed to welcome guests into the club and must be present with their guests upon entry and throughout their stay at the club. A guest fee must be paid and a waiver form must be filled out by the parent or guardian upon entry. Members may bring the same people as guests a maximum of 10 times during the season, and the guest must sign a guest registration and Waiver each time they visit.
